Pool Rebel has many nice extras and features that differentiates it from the other pool applications for your iPhone and iPod Touch. The interface works well, the motions are smooth, and the gameplay is amazing. No matter how picky or eccentric you are, you can customize the game to your liking. Play one of five different games, either against the CPU or against your friend. Set the CPU for an easy win, or make them a pro and try your best to beat them. You can chose one of 12 different colors to make up the felt top of the table. Pool Rebel is perfect for those who want to customize a game to their taste. No matter how you alter it, the game still works well and looks amazing. The graphics are still picture perfect each and every frame, no matter how fast the balls are moving.
Pool Rebel also offers the most accurate pool game, from the table and the set-up, to the physics used in the game, of any game I have seen for the iPhone. Let Nikos Konstas, the programmer, tell you more about that:
“[T]he main feature of the game is realism. For example the table is drawn exactly as specified in the rulebooks, the ball sizes are correct, the pocket are as they should be, etc. The physics are also pretty good - balls roll & slide as they do on a normal table. It[‘s] funny how many things I realized about pool & physics by writing this game.”
